More detailed information about the snowpack: 

With the incoming weather today we decided to take a look around Mt Emma and Mt Walker. The big changes today were in the sky not the snowpack. Moderate winds from the west southwest throughout the day today and cooler but above freezing temperatures were present. Overall it felt great to see a shift in the weather pattern. In the snow, sheltered and shady north facing terrain held pockets of faceted snow. Sunny aspect held moist surface grains and ski penetration was 0-5 cm.
